"Dressage au Fouet" (Raising with the Whip), a remarkable, rare, purely fetishistic film (not porn) of a mistress disciplining her slave. Made by Jacques Biederer (Ostra Studio), a Paris photographer of high-class erotica. In the '20s & 30s he made elegant (and humorous) "French postcard" type nudes - and incredible fetish pictures (spanking, whipping, S&M, pony play, etc.). Was astonished to discover he also dabbled in stag films. He influenced later artists John Willie, Irving Klaw, et al. (Blooper: You can glimpse a still cameraman on the right side for a second, possibly Biederer himself).
The more studious can read my article on the Ostra, and Beiderer Studios at:
This is part of a series on the history of fetishism in films. More to come, including another Ostra featurette. (You're welcome.)
